2018 AND 2017 EVENTS

Québec’s wee ones are not just the future of our society, they’re also its present

The three most recent editions of Early Childhood Week were the backdrop for a number of forward-thinking initiatives and learning opportunities. The resulting surge of support on the part of the various stakeholders involved in baby and toddler development in Quebec was palpable. Building on this solid foundation, other non-traditional partners from other sectors of society gradually joined in to make children 5 and under a true priority. In 2017, an open letter was signed by 52 people and organizations from the political, media, labour and business spheres. And nearly 40% of the activities were held in libraries across the province in connection with the Participating Libraries project.

Early Childhood Week is an opportunity to raise awareness, promote dialogue and engage society about early childhood matters.
